Application Process

Applicants to the neurology residency program must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Please see ERAS website for application requirements and details.

Interview Season:

  • Interview invitations are sent out via email through ERAS on a rolling basis, with our interview season starting in November and extending through mid- January.
  • All interviews this year will be held on Tuesday mornings and conducted virtually, in accordance with local GMEC guidelines. We are also offering several virtual open houses to explore our program further, where you will have an opportunity to meet the Program Director, Associate Program Directors, and Department Chair, as well as ask questions of our current residents.
      1. There will be no formal on-campus tours this year due to local and governing body guidelines.  However, if you are in the Los Angeles area, please feel free to swing by and drive through the campus.
